Owens said on "Fox & Friends" that she finds it comical that social media bans seems to only be happening with conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won't let that happen.

Trump's tweets Saturday, sent from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., were not the first time he has accused social media companies of discriminating against Republicans.

Victims' families - some of whom are suing Jones - have said the conspiracy theorists' claims have resulted in harassment from his followers. Facebook says that the content removed contained "glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies." .

Jones has since said that removing his content is censorship, and released a video statement claiming that there is "an attack on our birthright of free speech" and that "all nationalists and all conservatives are being shadowbanned and dialled down to nothing".

Owens, Turning Point USA's communications director, had been locked out of her Twitter account after copying tweets from Sarah Jeong, the newest member of the New York Times' editorial board.

WWE SummerSlam 2018 matches, card, location, date, start time, predictions PPV rumors
The Bludgeon Brothers will take on either Cesaro and Sheamus or The New Day with the SmackDown Tag Team Championship on the line. This could be one of the top matches on the card if built right.

Twitter took action Tuesday, suspending Jones' personal account for seven days for violating the platform's rules.

The president's comments came after Prager University, a conservative media organization, showed that Facebook had censored their content. Censorship is a very unsafe thing & absolutely impossible to police. According to him, there should be no control policies on these sites.

In the same video appeal, Jones urged Trump to "point out that the communist Chinese have penetrated and infiltrated" the USA election system and are "way, way worse than the Russians".

In his tweets Saturday, Trump urged social media companies to "let everybody participate, good & bad", saying that while networks like CNN and MSNBC might be "fake news", he does not "ask that their sick behavior be removed".
